My two favorite beers from a few days in and near Germany (both from restaurant and beer bar Hütt’n in Nuremberg, on Burgstraße — Nuremberg has a reputation for dark-for-Germany beers):
Landbier Dunkel from Brauerie Reh. Coppery, slightly hoppy with no bitterness, very satisfying.
Schwarze Anna from Brauerie Neder. Black, a sort of burnt chocolate taste (though not too heavy), reminded me of a stout.
I also had (though less exciting):
- Leichtes Landbier from Brauerie Rittmayer
- A Czech pilsner I didn’t write down the name of, in Prague
Every beer was reasonably good, and a welcome break from a bad beer I’d had in Asia, but nothing blew me away. I was also busy and slightly sick at the end of the trip, though, so beer tasting wasn’t at the top of my list.
